My Neighbor Just Brought Me A Cake..... Oy Vey...

Entry posted by wheeleezdryver · - 554 views

You know how the grocery stores/ bakeries donate any unsold bakery items to charity??
(trust me, years ago, I benefitted from this a few times).

My neighbor (who doesn't know I have a gluten/ dairy intolerance... I haven't told very many people).

Anywho, i guess she was at a church today, and they had some of these items. (why she was doing something that could probably wait is beyond me...it snowed 7 inches overnight...)

anywho, she picked up this cake & came by & gave it to us.

It's a Victorian White Lace Cake. 8 inches, 2 layers.
very beautiful cake!
White frosting. White rosette on top, complete w/ 3 gold colored leaves. Fancy schmancy.
I'm sitting 2 feet away from it & i can smell the sweet frosting.

This is one of those times where I think it would be easier if I lived by myself. If it weren't for DH, i would give it to someone else just to get it out of the house! (something I've learned to do as a can a long time ago, having been working on loosing weight for 4 years)

But, of course, he wants to try at least one piece. Which i don't blame him for! If I could, i would try one pice...per day, until it's gone :).
But knowing him, getting him to eat the whole thing will be, after he's eaten the 1st piece, an(other) exercise in patiently reminding/ asking him daily until he finally says, you can go ahead & throw it away.

Thankfully, however, we have two chirstmas parties coming up this weekend. Assuming we even go to either/ both of them, i can take any leftovers to the party for everyone else to eat. if anyone questions why some of it is missing, I'm sure i could get away with telling them i had just cut a piece for Tygh.

not to mention that now I have to try to find space for it somewhere in my refrigerator. (which desperately needs to be cleaned out!) ugh...

i knew the holiday treat giving was going to happen. I just didn't know it was going to start so early, and start like this, this year!! oy vey!!!
